Once he thought it was forever
But it's always never now

It was the best decision he ever made
Now he's living with the consequences
He was still a bit green
Like a sheep in a ballroom
She had the devil in her
He couldn't stop himself experimenting in secret
Fire was a constant theme

Now he's glad that it's over
And the horrible feeling's gone away
Nothing prepares you
He said "I'd do it all again
Just to be where I am"

Once he thought it was forever
But it's always never now
Once he thought it was forever
But it's always never now

And it seems so long ago now
When he didn't have that peace in himself
Two overlapping circles
But you can't find the center in somebody else

And the hardest of hearts
Couldn't fail to weep
Now he's on his way
Throw him a line as he walks to his sleep
Now he's on his way

Like the scales on a fish
They flash and flicker in the sea
But they're dull in the heat of the sun

When his back was to the wall
In a dirty bar in London
He didn't care about the Beatles
She would be angry & frightened
He would be hopeless & guilty
They had to discover that country for themselves
He went through life always
Looking to turn it around
The only way he can work it
Is from the inside
Making things happen from within
Once he thought it was forever
But it's always never now
